Traditional rulers throw weight behind Jonathan

At the just concluded Presidential Campaign Rally of the People’s Democratic Party in Enugu State for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan, no fewer than 371 traditional rulers in Enugu Sate pledged their support for President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming polls.

The traditional rulers praised the President, stressing during the meeting on the sides of his campaign rally that they will unanimously support his re-election bid.

Igwe Lawrence Agubuzu, the Chairman of the Enugu State Council of Traditional Rulers, speaking in the same vein, assured President Goodluck Jonathan that the State would remain a PDP State.

He further stressed, that the President had no issues with the State and so therefore the people were willing to always vote for his reliable government.

“We are custodians of peace and culture. With the transformation agenda of Mr. President, we have gained a lot.

“We are not politicians but we urge politicians not to see politics as a do-or-die affair.

“We appeal to politicians to deliver issue-based manifestos and not inciting ones,’’ he said.
